Jimmy Kimmel hosts members of acrobatic show 'Traces'

"Traces," the acrobatic show running at the Ricardo Montalbán Theatre in Hollywood through Feb. 13, features performers from the Canadian troupe Les Sept Doigts de la Main (The Seven Fingers of the Hand). The show is scheduled to travel to Denver in March as part of its national tour.

Late last night, members of the troupe appeared on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," performing brief excerpts from their stage act. You can watch one their stunts in the clip above.

A reviewer for The Times wrote of "Traces" that "beyond the buoyant talent, the appeal of this Montreal-based troupe is its lack of pretension. Performers make mistakes and sweat right in front of you, which gives their unvarnished virtuosity all the more impact."
